Can, shared in a location remote to my dining room.
Pours a golden color with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is dank and hop forward with a sort of mild sweetness and some bready character.

The flavor is nicely hoppy with a low-ish level of bitterness. It’s not especially dry but it’s not very sweet either. It’s got a nice fruity hop character and some real graininess.
Seems to taste plenty fresh for being a Spring seasonal... sheesh, this one was nice.

Westmeister (1732) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Can in a trade. Pours orange with fluffy white head and lasting lace. Tasteis rye spice, orange, pine, with a little maltiness poking through. Pretty refreshing and a depth of hops and spice make it nice enough.

TheHOFF43 (1749) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Can. Didn’t pour it so it could be anything, it might be blue. This is somewhat hoppy, mostly rye and boring. Somewhat spicy.

jbruner (2296) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Pours a clear gold from the can with nice lasting off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of rye and sweet caramel malts backed nicely by a citrus floral hop punch. Taste is more towards the sweet hop with a hint of vanilla and caramel, the rye comes a bit late but still there. Solid, nothing crazy but well executed.

Dogbrick (7973) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Sample at Gallo’s Tap Room. The beer is a clear orange-gold color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, malt and citrus. Light-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, citrus and grainy malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a floral hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 27, 2014
Bronze body, ring of head. Floral hop and sharp rye nose. Medium-bodied, floral--with a touch of jasmine, and again the appearance of rye. Wet. Nice trailing Chinook bitterness. Clean and thoroughly satisfying.

umich03jm (1934) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 25, 2014
Can thanks to DrSilverworm. Pours a hazy gold color with a small foamy head that fades to a ring. Aroma is packed with spicy rye with some citrus and pine hops too. Taste starts with grapefruit, pine and light tropical fruit. Finishes dry with rye and biscuits. Pretty smooth. Nice rye pale ale.

Not going to win any awards in the originality department, but this is a well-executed rye pale ale. Smooth, with that spicy peak that rye imparts. I would recommend for an easy session beer. 12oz bottle pour.
